Art Wall

Robert R Husty “Catch Hold Of A Moment”


A selection of abstract paintings by Robert R Husty, representing moments in time in which the artist stopped to document the feelings and thoughts associated with them, will be featured at the library this July.


The paintings are built upon principles of both expressionism and abstract expressionism. They feature organic forms, drawn from nature, and existential themes. Although specific subjects are depicted, usually identified by the title of the piece, the artworks are designed to stimulate or provoke the viewer’s vision, feelings, and thoughts in determining individual meanings. The work is expressionistic, using line, color, shape, and symbolism (which includes hidden or embedded images) to evoke psychological themes and moods.

Husty’s artwork has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout the region, including the Northeast Biennial and the Fine Arts Fiesta. He is the recipient of several awards for his artworks, including First Place Painting in the 2016 Fine Arts Fiesta.
